A 21st Century "MARCH TO THE SEA"


Just as he initiated his stand for America and the state of Georgia in a 21st century "March To The Sea" during the 2020 elections--
Al is continuing that stand as he runs for Governor of Georgia in 2022!

"We will never, ever, ever surrender the future of Georgia in the United States of America to forces of cultural separation." -- Al Bartell

Reminiscent of the original “Sherman’s March To The Sea”, Al Bartell  invoked a 21st century “March To The Sea” in 2020 to re-presence Georgians and America to the original intent and language of the Emancipation Proclamation (Presidential Executive Order 95) -- which Sherman’s March To The Sea fulfilled on during the American Civil War.

The Emancipation Proclamation did more than free 3.5 million of America’s blacks from slavery.  It specifically addressed the protection of black Americans during the coming days.

Particularly, the Emancipation Proclamation prohibited violence against black Americans -- newly freed -- by the police, the military, or any others. That prohibition against violence included the prohibition of punishment of black Americans from the court system, or the “law of the land” of that time -- for being free, by law.

155 years later, in remembrance of the 13th Amendment, which ensured black Americans freedom from slavery/prohibition from violence in perpetuity, U.S. Public Policy Leader Al Bartell  travelled to 13 cities reminiscent of the original "March to the Sea" :

Atlanta(Rayshard Brooks News Conference);
Dalton, Kennesaw, and Marietta;
Jonesboro, McDonough, Forsyth, and Macon;
Milledgeville, Dublin, and Soperton;
Metter and Savannah

At each of the thirteen cities, Al read the Emancipation Proclamation on the steps leading into each City Hall, giving an advance courtesy communication to each city's Mayor and City Council.

Al Bartell On Race And Violence : 

“Sherman’s ‘March To The Sea’ in Georgia was less about saving the Union than it was about ensuring the protection of the newly freed black Americans:

It fulfilled the intent of the Emancipation Proclamation.

"Many of us have forgotten this vital history, especially in our current situation of violence against black Americans.

“Additionally, the 13th Amendment of the United States Constitution ensures black Americans, in perpetuity, freedom from slavery --
and protection from violence.

"That has been the case since the Emancipation Proclamation -- two years before Sherman’s March To The Sea -- and since the 13th Amendment was ratified, nearly 155 years ago.

“We're now taking a stand for Georgia, the Southeast region, and the United States of America -- that people have the freedom to be different without being separate, or disconnected -- or at risk for their lives.”

Both blacks and whites got freed 
from the shackles of human domination
initiated by
Sherman's March to the Sea.

We will never, ever, ever surrender our future in Georgia,
as a key reference point in the
Southeast region of the United States of America,

to forces of cultural separation in the dawn of the 21st century."
